A quick question. When people mention asphyxiation through hanging, does that imply that you strangle yourself by hanging or that you use carotid compression to stop the transportation of oxygen through blood to the brain? I've read that hanging being used in a strangling matter is just a western media interpretation.

Full suspension hanging should cut off your carotids and kill you from lack of bloodflow to the brain, but your body weight should also provide enough force to close off your airway as well.
